Using just a few supplies you probably have at home already, you can create your own gorgeous linen pillow covers.

All you need is...
  • painter's tape & thin washi tape
  • craft paint
  • a sponge pouncer
  • cardboard or a sheet of paper

First apply the tape to the pillow in a stripe pattern you like.

It is important to put a piece of paper or cardboard between the layers of your fabric so the paint doesn't bleed through.

Using the sponge pouncer and a light touch of paint, pounce the paint down the stripes. 

Remove the tape before the paint dries.

I made a different stripe pattern for each of the 4 pillow covers I bought.

I added a monogram to one of the pillows on each side of the stripe using a children's plastic stencil. It gave me the perfect simple vintage monogram I was looking for.

    1. Thanks Jill... I can sew but I'm not a fantastic seamstress like you are so I go for the pre-made covers :) Makes my life much easier!

  2. So happy you posted this because I'm planning on making some grain sack pillows for my couch. I have the fabric. Now I just have to muster up the courage to actually get the paint on there.
